My sweet baby is four weeks old today! I can't believe it's already been a month since Wilder came into our lives. He is so amazing and we fall more and more in love with him every day. In the last month it's like he's woken up to the world and we are having so much fun with him. We are so looking forward to having our first Christmas with him tomorrow.
It's been a pretty low-key week overall because, until yesterday, it has rained nonstop since last Friday so we haven't been able to get out of the house with him at all. We've been having fun anyway though. This week he has been staring at us so much and he grins so big when we make funny faces at him. It's so rewarding to have him respond to us. Here's the best picture I could get of his cute little smile (the flash always makes him squint).
He's also been loving on the dogs this week. He loves to touch Posey because she's so soft. She's not so sure about being a pillow, but she'll tolerate it.
One of the best things that happened this week was that Wilder got to meet his Lovie (Paul's mom). She just ooh'd and ahh'd over him and helped us so much! She cooked and cleaned and went to the grocery for us and held him in the mornings so we could sleep in. She totally spoiled us :)
She also watched him one night for us so we could go out to dinner.
Wilder has been loving having his daddy home this week. Since Paul was working so hard to finish up the quarter for the first three weeks of his life, Wilder was a lot more used to being around me and it made Paul sad. But they have been getting in a lot of bonding time this week and they are both loving it.
Bathtime is one of his favorite times of day. It makes him such a happy boy and he loves splashing in the water. Look how chubby he is!
We are looking forward to Christmas tomorrow and to seeing Wilder's Daddy G (Paul's dad), his Aunt Lizanne, Aunt Audra, and Uncle Michael the next day! Wilder's so lucky to have so much family that loves him and who will travel all the way across the country to see him!
